Fresh Pear Bread
About this Cook
i'm a college student (i.e. POOR) and love to spend my free time (when i have it) cooking and baking, especially when things get stressful. theres just something about whipping up something fantastic that makes you forget everything you were worried about :) and theres nothing like baking up amazing goodies for everyone to enjoy-i love seeing smiles on peoples' faces after i make them something :) THATS really why i love cooking. and i can also spend literally hours on this website just roaming around, looking for things that look good haha
My favorite things to cook
chocolate chip cookies (my specialty), fresh pear bread, any kind of biscotti or cookie really. i also love to make soups-lentil, chicken, minestrone, french onion.. any kind of roasted veggies and anything italian :)
My favorite family cooking traditions
the insane amount of cookies i make during the holiday season to send out to my friends and family :) i spend days whipping out batches and batches and BATCHES of biscotti
My cooking triumphs
a cookie cake for my best friend's birthday
My cooking tragedies
my attempt at remembering my favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe while i was on spring break with my friends.. it uses vanilla pudding mix, and i asked my boyfriend, who was going to the store to go get some. bad idea... he came back with a package of vanilla pudding cups that you put in like, school lunches lol. they were interesting to say the least.

Cake Mix Cookies IV
awesome because theyre super easy-but i found them to be really salty. i used a devil's food cake mix and reese's peanut butter chips. i dunno what it was but it seemed like the chips didn't wanna "stick" in the batter so when i put them down i really had to smush them to form a cookie. they turned out fine though-everyone loved them, i just thought they were SUPER salty and just kind of... "eh". but it could've been the PB chips

Coconut Walnut Biscotti
ohmygod. i love biscotti and i make TONS of it for my family during christmas and was looking for a new recipe to try out. so this past christmas i tried this one out and it is BY FAR my most FAVORITE biscotti EVER-everyone loved it and it turned out perfect everytime. i like these biscotti mostly because i love coconut haha but also because they were thicker and different than most of the chocolate dipped or dried fruit filled biscotti out there. great recipe-thank you for adding to my family tradition!!! :)

Award Winning Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies
definitely my go-to recipe for chocolate chip cookies. i'm like famous for these things haha (thanks by the way!) i actually made this into a cookie cake for my friend's birthday whose insanely obsessed with my cookies haha it turned out great-just spread it into one of those disposable pizza tins (i think it was about 12-13" in diameter and it had pretty high sides) and baked it for about a half hour. decorated with some icing (store bought, sorry) and the compliments rolled in!!! thanks again :)
